romney and paul ryan have laid out a comprehensive plan on what we need to do to get spending under control. president obama hasn't had a budget in four years. we have seen $4 trillion deficits under his lack of leadership with our debt reaching $16 trillion. and as you know, if we stay on this path, by the end of his second term, should he be re-elected, it would be $20 trillion. that's unacceptable. >> is there a way to say that within the framework of what simpson/bowles are now providing, this time with the involvement of a lot of the nation's ceos? >> well, governor romney and paul ryan, like i said, have laid out a plan, not just to bring spending under control, but to reform our tax code, get people working again. because with more people in the work force, we'll be able to generate more income and that will be more money coming in. as you know, right now with 23 million americans struggling for work, many of those underemployed, they can't get good jobs. the amount of income we need just isn't coming in. >> yeah. but what i hear you saying is that it's going to be on your te

"fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: you know what could be an october surprise is if big bird comes out and said he is for mitt romney. >> gretchen: the people at sesame street said they are not for any cand date. they don't want esident obama's adto continue to run and they are asking for it to come down. >> brian: obama people are thinking about it >> maybe that is because it was panned by both sides of the aisle. >> brian: we listened to it on radio yesterday. it sounds like steven colbear or jon stewart it sounds like a total comedy nothing to do with either side. >> steve: they feature three people from wall street, evil villians. >> brian: madav and ken lay. >> steve: all indicted
. >> romney running mate paul ryan arrived in kentucky where he will face-off for 90 minutes with the vice president joe biden. it will be ryan's first debate on the national stage. with the race so close there is extra pressure for him to turn in a clutch performance. >> vice president biden travels to the debate site later today. he had several mock debates with the paul ryan stand-in, maryland congressman chris van holland. who has been with biden all week helping him prep, and a sign of how good he feels about his prospects, his first campaign event after the debate will be in wisconsin, right in paul ryan's back yard. martha raddatz moderates the debate and we will carry it live. >>> as for the top of the ticket, there are questions this morning about where mitt romney stands on abortion. romney said in an interview tuesday that he has no plans for abortion legislation if elected. but anti-abortion advocates reminded him of his pledge to do everything in his power to promote a culture of life. and so on the stump in ohio, romney reaffirmed that he is indeed pro-life. in an interview w
president biden is in wilmington, delaware, his hometown, preparing. romney's running mate paul ryan is headed to danville, kentucky, where the debate will take place. of course, you can watch the vice presidential debate live tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. eastern on cnn and on cnn.com. it will be interesting, to say the least. >> absolutely, it will be. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," affirmative action, the supreme court is taking up that racially charged issue. up next, we're going to talk to a university president who was the last to look into this issue in front of the supreme court. columbia university professor lee bollinger. president, for give me. i just demoted him. >>> and shocking and disturbing video. suv slams into a man. look at that. oh, my goodness. crossing the street. sends him ten feet in the air. >>> plus, a look at business. christine? >> yeah, if you drive a toyota, enormous, enormous global recall under way. what you need to know if you're driving a toyota next. you're watching "starting point." when you have diabetes... your doctor will say ge
said, joe biden will sell barack obama, but paul ryan has to sell mitt romney. you can't really sell paul ryan, right? so he has to -- it's going to be interesting to see how well he does that. i think we agree that joe biden will do his job, will go in and will explain all those crucial moments of the obama presidency and how things worked out and what a great guy he is. >> so joe biden, i agree will do his job. joe, do you think that paul ryan will be allowed to do his job? because i think the problem has been that from the moment he was chosen, they then were hiding his signature elements. >> well, paul ryan's not the president. and i think mitt romney said it clearly, i'm the president, paul ryan -- >> so he won't be allowed to do his job? >> no more than somebody you hire as a production assistant is going to tell you what to say on the air. >> well, i will say, he sounds really almost -- he chose his youth when he said mitt romney is the president, and therefore i believe. >> who is he? why was he chosen? because he has incredible, brave ideas. >> hold on. so -- >> at a time wh
as mitt romney. it's really on medicare especially, it's the ryan policies that obama is running against. and then lastly, i think what ryan and biden are defined by in a lot of ways and for biden, that's partially hit his gaffes. is he going to step in it? is there going to be some memorable sound bite from that debate? and ryan is known as the numbers guy. and the whole obama campaign now against romney and ryan is that the numbers on the republican side don't add up. so i think there's going to be pressure on ryan to explain the numbers or at least the obama folks are going to try and pressure ryan to explain the numbers. so these things usually don't matter. it's the undercard. but this time i think there could be a little more importance. >> i think you're exactly right. biden's actually a very good debater. he was very good during the democratic debates in '08. he beat barack obama every time. he is good in the debates, but boy, he can't afford to have an off night, can he? >> no. >> i mean, you talk about feeding into a narrative. i actually think paul ryan can break even and he'l

and discuss. hopefully whether we do that debate and discussion, we'll do it with, you know, mitt romney and congressman ryan that won't walk away from a whole host of policy decisions in the middle of the debate. >> understanding, though, the president has to sort of go after mitt romney and engage and fight with him a little bit on the debate stage. is that something you all are bringing to the table? >> well, look, i don't want to give away everything. obviously, we want a nice crowd for the debate. i think each candidate has to be very much on their toes. what i mean by na is president obama and vice president biden, for watching mitt romney and paul reasyan do as they've done throughout this campaign, which is walk away from what they talked about days earlier. we got a great example yesterday. mitt romney goes to "the des moines register" board saying there's nothing in his agenda to restrict a woman's right to choose, which we know after having said in debates he's happy to sign a legislation that ended all abortions. we understand there's a mitt romney you see pop up in public, p

-identified republicans were up in the post-debate polls. so the wind has definitely been at romney's back, that's for sure, but the composition changed and changed numbers as well. >> i think there will be paul ryan's fourth debate since he's been in congress, so definitely new to that game, whereas joe bietden has been around 40-plus years in the senate. >> a long time. pressure on both, that's for sure. >> it will be high drama. >>> one month after the deadly attack on the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other americans in benghazi we were learning more about security fears leading up to the assault. state department documents show the u.s. embassy in libya asked for a four-month extension for a 16-member security team and the team's commander tells abc news, that ambassador chris stevens wanted the security force to stay even longer, past august. but no request was actually received. in fact, a request for an extension past august, it was, but no never made even though it had been confirmed and it was granted. but they had never actually put that request through. but tragic, if indeed tha
